    Based in part on Dickens's own life, it is the story of a young man's journey from an unhappy and impoverished childhood to the discovery of his vocation as a successful novelist. Among its gloriously vivid cast of characters, he e.ncounters his tyrannical stepfather, Mr. Murdstone; his formidable aunt, Betsey Trotwood; the eternally humble yet treacherous Uriah Heep; the frivolous, enchanting Dora; and one of literature's great comic creations, the magnificently impecunious Mr. Micawber.

    Story

    I listened to 'David Copperfield' while driving to and from work. At stressful times during my shift, I found myself anticipating my escape into this compelling story at the end of the day.
    Simon Vance's audio depiction of the multitude of characters in this book is superb. Old or young, male or female, city or country, his capture of the character’s voice is impeccable. Dickens’ prose can be quite wordy and I doubt I would have finished the book if I was actually reading it, but having such a good audio presentation made it easy to enter David Copperfield’s world and travel with him through his fascinating, and sometimes sad, life. If you have never read Dickens, I recommend you meet David Copperfield, Betsey Trotswood, Mr Dick, Mr and Mrs Micawber, Peggotty, Mr Barkis, Thomas Traddles, and of course, the most ‘umble and slimy Uriah Heep.
